Helicon Focus is designed to blend the focused areas of several partially focused digital photographs to increase the depth of field. In other words, it creates one focused image from the set of several partially focused photographs by combining the focused areas.
The program is designed for macrophotography, microphotography and hyperfocal landscape photography to cope with the shallow depth-of-field problem. Helicon Focus also aligns images as objects often change their size and position from shot to shot. This function is especially important for macrophotography.
